I was watching the first couple of parts of the documentary about Monty Python's Flying Circus last night, "Almost The Truth" and it was interesting to see how they didn't dumb down things and it was an inspiration to continue to not dumb down things in the hopes that people will then go off and learn about Proust or Heidegger. Informal learning at it's best.
Along the same lines it's interesting the spam I get has this Monty Python quality; it's almost surreal and absurd. Clearly, it's spam, but it's very entertaining. I almost consider publishing many of the spam comments, just to share them with you. Unfortunately, that would only encourage them.
